Our Ursuline girls welcomed Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Councilman Joe Giarrusso to campus to join us in our Water Cup Initiative. Both city officials have a passion for this topic - Mayor Cantrell who began CleanUp NOLA and Councilman Giarrusso who is the chair of the Quality of Life Committee. We applaud their efforts and we thank them for supporting ours!
Started by members of our Key Club, the initiative seeks to reduce the amount of plastic cup waste our students produce in the dining hall alone. Students are encouraged to be more mindful by bringing their own cups to lunch. Special Ursuline Tervis tumblers were sold to students and faculty during today's field day. They will continue to be sold around campus and in our bookstore.
